Lyrics

[Verse 1]

I like the way you sound in the morning,

We're on the phone and without a warning

I realize your laugh is the best sound I have ever heard

I like the way I can't keep my focus,

I watch you talk you didn't notice

I hear the words but all I can think is we should be together

Taylor Swift- Jump then Fall Lyrics

[Pre-Chorus]

Every time you smile, I smile

And every time you shine, I'll shine for you

[Chorus]

Whoa oh I'm feeling you baby

Don't be afraid to jump then fall, jump then fall into me

Baby, I'm never gonna leave you,

Say that you wanna be with me too

Cuz I'ma stay through it all so jump then fall

[Verse 2]

Well I like the way your hair falls in your face

You got the keys to me I love each freckle on your face, oh,

I've never been so wrapped up,

Honey, I like the way you're everything I've ever wanted

I had time to think it all over and all I can say is come closer,

Take a deep breath and jump then fall into me

[Pre-Chorus]

Every time you smile, I smile

And every time you shine, I'll shine for you

[Chorus]

Whoa oh I'm feeling you baby

Don't be afraid to jump then fall, jump then fall into me

Baby, I'm never gonna leave you,

Say that you wanna be with me too

I'ma stay through it all so jump then fall

[Bridge]

The bottoms gonna drop out from under our feet

I'll catch you, I'll catch you

When people say things that bring you to your knees,

I'll catch you

The time is gonna come when you're so mad you could cry

But I'll hold you through the night until you smile

[Chorus]

Whoa oh I need you baby

Don't be afraid please

Jump then fall, jump then fall into me

Baby, I'm never gonna leave you,

Say that you wanna be with me too

I'ma stay through it all so jump then fall

Jump then fall baby

Jump then fall into me, into me

[Outro]

Every time you smile, I smile

And every time you shine, I'll shine

And every time you're here baby, I'll show you, I'll show you

You can jump then fall, jump then fall, jump then fall

Into me, into me yeah
